Rise and Shine:
Get up early; First-come, first-serve tailgating spaces at the stadium are available for every home game day. The desirable spots in Lot C are sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you dilly dally, you will be directed to the back lots, Lots M, N or P. Tailgate spaces open up 5 hours before kick-off.
Know the rules:
Freeze water bottles as a substitute for ice, you can drink them later on. Bring three coolers- One for beverages, one for raw meat for the grill and one for prepared food. Don't forget the heavy duty trash bags. Pack a variety of snacks and finger foods, ready to serve, while friends wait for the grill. Less fuss is better.
Stand out in the crowd:
Make a tall, unique tailgating flag and fly it as high as you can! Your friends will need the landmark. Dropping a pin may not work when cell service gets jammed.
Tailgating is an all day event:
Dress in layers. Wear Sunscreen. And drink plenty of water.
Take a walk and explore the other sites.
Don't forget your signature dish!
